Kirby families putting lives back together after June 16 fire
Barbara Berry describes herself as a heavy sleeper. So when she roused to pounding on her door early Monday morning, June 16, smoke had already filled her apartment.
But Berry, whose home and belongings were a total loss, is thankful that she and her eight year old autistic son escaped the blaze that ripped through Building 4100 in the Kirby Road Estates apartment complex near Robinsonville.
“We lost things that we can’t replace, but I’ve got my life,” Berry said.
Apartment manager April Montgomery Crumpler has spent every day since the Kirby fire trying to help the eight families who lost their homes.
